API requests

Find or create a new dataset
import { Geckoboard } from 'geckoboard';

const API_KEY = 'YOUR_API_KEY';

const gb = new Geckoboard(API_KEY);

const dataset = gb.defineDataset({
  id: 'my.dataset',
  fields: {
    count: {
      type: 'number',
      name: 'Count',
    },
    day: {
      type: 'date',
      name: 'Day',
    },
    timestamp: {
      type: 'datetime',
      name: 'Timestamp',
    },
  },
  uniqueBy: ['day'],
});

await dataset.create();
Update a dataset

await dataset.append([
  { count: 1, day: '2023-10-10' },
  { count: 2, day: '2023-10-11' },
  { count: 3, day: '2023-10-12' },
  { count: 4, day: '2023-10-13' },
]);

// provide an optional 'delete_by' value, to indicate 
// which fields should be used to indicate which records
// should be deleted
await dataset.append([{ count: 3, day: '2023-10-11' }], 'day')
Replace all data in a dataset
// all current data will be replaced
await dataset.replace([{ count: 2, day: '2023-10-10' }])

Delete a dataset

// remove the dataset completely
await dataset.delete()

Using Date objects to send date/datetime field values
await dataset.append([
  { count: 1, day: new Date('2023-10-10T12:00:00Z') },
  { count: 2, day: new Date('2023-10-11T12:00:00Z') },
  { count: 3, day: new Date('2023-10-12T12:00:00Z') },
  { count: 4, day: new Date('2023-10-13T12:00:00Z') },
]);

This will store the respective dataset field values as whatever the UTC value of the given Date object is.

// be careful with timezones, the date that is sent to the server
// will be the UTC value of the given date.
await dataset.append([
  {
    timestamp: new Date('2018-01-01T12:00:00'), 
    // If local timezone is GMT, this will map to '2018-01-01T12:00:00.000Z'
    // If local time zone is `Europe/Paris` (UTC + 1), this will map to
    // 2018-01-01T11:00:00.000Z
    steps: 819,
  },
]);

// local time will be changed to UTC
await dataset.append([
  {
    timestamp: new Date('2018-01-01T12:00'), // local time maps to UTC
    // so for example, if you're in `Europe/Paris` (UTC + 1) this will be
    // '2018-01-01T11:00:00.000Z' -  it changes 12 noon back to 11am.
    steps: 819,
  },
]);

// dates with non-UTC timezone
await dataset.append([
  {
    timestamp: new Date('2013-09-15T05:53:00+08:00'),
    // UTC + 8 time maps to UTC. So, this will map to
    // '2013-09-14T21:53:00.000Z' -  it goes back 8 hours, and changes
    // the day, if necessary.
    steps: 819,
  },
]);

// date strings are always interpreted as UTC
// this is a quirk in the Javascript spec
await dataset.append([
  {
    timestamp: ...,
    day: new Date('2013-09-15'),
    // will always map to '2013-09-15'
    // regardless of your timezone.
    steps: 819,
  },
]);

Ping to test connection

import { Geckoboard } from 'geckoboard';

const API_KEY = 'YOUR_API_KEY';

const gb = new Geckoboard(API_KEY);

try {
  await gb.ping()
  console.log("success")
} catch (err) {
  console.log(err); 
}

Running the tests
